PROJECT WILD THING - 13.00-15.00, Sun 18th May - Free
Filmmaker David Bond is a worried man. His kids' waking hours are dominated by a cacophony of marketing, and a screen dependence threatening to turn them into glassy-eyed zombies. Like city kids everywhere, they spend way too much time indoors - not like it was back in his day. He decides it's time to get back to nature – literally.
Project Wild Thing is a film led movement to get more kids and their parents outside and reconnecting with nature. The film is an ambitious, feature-length documentary that takes a funny and revealing look at a complex issue, the increasingly disparate connection between children and nature.

When & Where
Cycle To The Cinema
The cinema where it all started is the lovely Moorland Discovery Centre in the woods at Longshaw Estate very close to the Fox House Pub, some 5 miles outside of Sheffield on the border between Derbyshire and South Yorkshire. The wooden building, insulated with sheep's wool in the walls, is cosy, pretty, and kitted out with a decent sound system, projector and screen. It seats around 50 people.
The evenings usually start at 8pm giving you time to grab a bite to eat after work and cycle to the cinema. You will normally be able to order tea/ coffee and cake when booking your tickets so don't worry about low blood-sugar. Things will wrap up between 9.30pm and 10pm giving you time to freewheel home and jump in the shower before bed.
...et voila - exercise, entertainment and a social, all in the same evening.
In case you are wondering, yes we will allow you in if you don't come by bike, but we hope you'll enter into the spirit of things.
